Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent relaxing hideaway! I can't recommend this place highly enough. We booked both houses for a week over xmas and it exceeded our expectations. 5 minutes from the beach and with a pool also meant we were spoilt for choice. It was relaxing, quiet and peaceful, but you were only 10 minutes drive from Nelson Bay and the surrounding bays/activities if you needed them. The cottage was great and the hosts were friendly and very helpful. We would have no hesitation in going back and look forward to our next visit. Thanks Guy and Julie.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely, clean, quiet and convenient to One Mile The property is situated behind the owner's property, in a serene and private setting. There is a verandah and outdoor eating area, which would be perfect if the weather had been better for us. There is a good kitchen, fresh linens and the home is very clean. Couch is a little worn but not an issue. Access to One Mile is a five minute walk, down a path and across the main road. The owner is really friendly and happy to help out if needed, we brought our boat with us and she made sure we had parking and access to a hose. We had a really lovely time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A perfect, peaceful beach getaway We stayed at Surfside Dreaming for 4 nights with my wife, daughter and newborn baby boy. Julie was a fabulous host, and made us feel very welcome. The cottage was lovely, clean and spacious, and my daughter loved the pool. I struggled to get her out of it. The toughest decision of the day was whether to swim in the pool or at the beach across the road. Would happily recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing peaceful getaway !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic property and host! Our stay at Surfside Dreaming was excellent. We hired out both the cottage and bunkhouse. Both of which were very clean and well equipped. Julie - the owner, was also incredibly friendly and helpful and was quick to answer any questions and assist in the lead up to our stay and once we got there. Would definitely come back another time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Winter escape! We recently stayed at Surfside Dreaming in wintertime. The house was located close to many local features and we loved walking to One Mile Beach each morning to enjoy a coffee on the waterfront. The whales at Boat Harbour were numerous and so close! This was also a close walk. The house was a great set up for two families with teenagers. Between us we have 5 girls and they stayed in the bungalow, allowing parents privacy in the main house. The girls played pool in the large bungalow living area. AND.....with all those girls we did not run out of hot water ever!!! No mean feat. We cooked many meals in the kitchen and it had all the resources we required. The large TV meant we could all watch at once. The beds were really comfortable and all the linen super fresh. Julie was a lovely host, helping with local advice and pointing out local wildlife. We would definitely stay here again.
